Electricity produced by distributed energy resources such as solar installations and energy storage systems in Singapore may soon be coordinated to function like a single power station.

This would be made possible by the development of a virtual power plant (VPP) which brings about greater flexibility and scalability to the power grid, the Energy Market Authority (EMA) and Sembcorp Industries (Sembcorp). It would also allow for more clean and distributed energy resources like solar to be integrated into Singapore's energy mix.
